BBC Studios is all set to add another Indian adaptation to their successful list of shows with the green light for a local version of Sherlock Holmes.

The adaptation is set to be contextualized in an Indian setting, with the lead role of Sherlock Holmes being played by the highly-acclaimed actor Kay Kay Menon, and his trusty partner Dr John Watson being portrayed by the versatile actor Ranvir Shorey.

Report from peepingmoon states that the show is set to begin production in April in Kolkata, with director Srijit Mukherji at the helm. This comes as no surprise, as Mukherji has been making a name for himself with his recent directorial ventures, including the Pankaj Tripathi-starrer Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga and the upcoming Taapsee Pannu-starrer Shabaash Mithu.
